Visiting Assistant Professor of History
"In an age of the exponential growth of data, men and women seeking an effective filter to understand these times will only find it if they possess a right understanding of the past. Here at NU, we work from an interpretive model that draws from the Bible, cultural studies, and anthropology to make sense of all of the past as well as the present. Our small class sizes facilitate a personalized, engaging learning environment where you'll interact with faculty and fellow students. This community of scholars shares academic interests and aspirations as well as a unity of purpose that is rooted in our personal and corporate experience of and commitment to Christ and His Kingdom."
